Abstract

In addition to their canonical intracellular signals involved in the regulation of neuronal plasticity, G-protein coupled receptors can also rapidly transactivate tyrosine kinase receptors and their downstream intracellular signaling in absence of specific ligands. Here we describe our protocol for dissociating and maintaining hippocampal primary neurons in high- and low-density culture, followed by a description of methods employed to evaluate neurite outgrowth and protein phosphorylation associated with fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 transactivation by muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. Our goal was to provide the reader with detailed protocols of the abovementioned techniques and to highlight advantages and limitations of the used approaches as compared to other valid alternatives.
